I have three of the most ordinary names on the planet. However, ordinary x 3 = extraordinary.
Growing up I thought that advertising was something to be avoided on tv.
But since I joined the pay-for-your-own-cable-club in college I began to appreciate everything it offered.
And I learned that advertising isn’t just two and a half minutes of cliffhanger mood killer. It’s actually kind of genius.
But really, can’t they wait until after Jerry Springer announces who’s the daddy?
There’s something beautifully simple about a concept that just fits. That turns a brand into a story. That makes everyone wonder “why didn’t I think of that?”
Because apparently having all three boring names is a rarity in itself. And rare-named people are the most creative people. I read that on the internet.
Thanks, mom and dad.
Although I'm from the same place as Mike, my ads tend to be a LITTLE better.
